White Snowflake Welcome Wood Door Hanger

The White Snowflake Wood Door Hanger measures 10″ and is happy hanging as a

Holiday Welcome on your front door or just hanging out on the wall.

Add it to the center of a wreath for even more pizazz.

Red Snowflake Welcome 10" Wood Door Hanger

When you order your kit, you will have the choice of a white or red snowflake. 

The Welcome Snowflake is made using Ultra Metallic Glitter Vinyl from StyleTechCraft.

The Workshop Kit includes a 10″ wood circle, vinyl snowflake greeting, transfer paper,

gray/red plaid ribbon, a jingle bell, and greenery. (You will need to provide acrylic paint.)

The Red Snowflake Welcome is another example of what you can make with the supplies

found in your kit.  I used a walnut stain on the wood base for a completely different look.

Red Plaid Embroidery Hoop Ornament

The Embroidery Hoop Ornament is a quick and easy project with lots of opportunities

for personalization.  You have the choice of the red flannel shown, a soft grey flannel,

or red and black buffalo check flannel.

You will get several words that you can choose from to stencil onto the cream twill ribbon.

The Embroidery Hoop Ornament measures approx. 4″ when finished.

(you will need a glue gun for this project)

Holiday Joy Gift Card Money Holder

The Holiday Joy Gift Card/Money Holder is great for sticking a little money

or a Starbucks gift card.  Who wouldn’t love getting that for Christmas?

The card uses the Coffee Die Set from The Maker’s Movement.

The sleeve around the coffee cup uses the NEW Eileen Hull Sweater Embossing Plate*.

Warm & Cozy Embossed Sweater Card

The Warm & Cozy Card also uses the New Sweater Embossing Plate from Eileen Hull and Sizzix.

I’m in love with this new embossing plate and can’t wait for you to see how lovely it is in person.

Cardinal Shaker Card

Shake Things Up with a cute Cardinal Shaker Card. 

This card is made using dies and Jingle Bell Shaker Sprinkles from The Maker’s Movement,

and paper from Simple Stories Make It Merry Collection*.

A little more about Sue’s Holiday Workshop…

For the last decade (plus), I have looked forward to hosting my annual “Sue’s Holiday Workshop” every November. It’s my Holiday Christmas Party with friends. This stupid pandemic has made it hard. Last year we did an abbreviated version of the Holiday Workshop with fewer projects and an affordable price. This year I’ve decided to do the same. I hope that next year, we will finally get to come together in person. It’ll be a full day of Holiday Crafting Fun. (I’ll probably start planning as soon as this season is over.)

Thank you to everyone who came and participated in Sue’s Holiday Workshop.

This year’s plaid themed Holiday Workshop was one for the books.

I really enjoy laughing with you all and especially all the hugs.
